Superstar singer Dua Lipa is among the artists scheduled to perform during next month´s Brit Awards ceremony.

Around 4,000 guests will be allowed to attend next month´s Brit Awards ceremony as part of the government´s pilot scheme easing coronavirus restrictions for live events, organisers said Thursday.

Express her views about the ceremony, Dua said,"This has been a long, tough year for everyone and I´m delighted the night will honour the key worker heroes who have cared for us so well during that time and continue to do so." 

The singer said, "They are quite simply an inspiration. The Brit Awards are always special and this will truly make it a night to remember."

Audience members at London´s O2 Arena will not need to socially distance or wear face coverings once seated, but will need to produce a negative test result for the virus.

More than half the tickets will go to key workers from London.

The annual ceremony, which normally takes place in February, was postponed by three months because of safety and logistical concerns due to the pandemic.
